The larger book is the recent Asheville Poetry Review which I had to hunt down in order to finish Kathryn Stripling Byer's magnificent poem "Searcher." She posted the beginning on her blog and I was hooked. The subject matter is startling and beautifully rendered. Have a look.
So far, most of the words that have come to me are what I would call soft -- silken, wind-swept, silver-scaled, crimson -- sounds kinda like a romance novel. There are a few more solid sounds -- earth (though I find myself wanting to write earthen,) root-bound, wake (resolutely avoiding waken.)
I'm inviting you all to send me one or two words each and I'll put them in. When the book is full, I'll post what we've got.
